RICHMOND, Va. -- For many, the first snow fall of the season Monday brought some much-needed joy.

Sarah Gorfain tells CBS 6 she and her kids wished for it to come true.

"It's beautiful, it's just enough snow to make everything look like a winter wonderland," said Gorfain. "We were all wishing for snow and crossing our fingers last night because we knew there was like an 85% chance."

Weekend forecasts predicted some light dusting and possibly an inch of the snow Monday morning.

Krista Pine said she knew she had to capture the beautiful sight with her camera.

"I think its so far the only time that I've been happy this year in 2020... I went to Rockett's Landing and then I came here because it's just so beautiful," she added.

Even with the nearly freezing temps, runners enjoyed the view.

Wil Sands said he normally doesn't see many people out on his morning run and knew he needed to take it all in. He said hopefully the snowfall is a sign of things to come this season.

"Other people don't like it, but I love winter and we don't get enough of it," said Sands.

Several schools across central Virginia were either closed or on a two-hour delay Monday morning due to the weather.
